I’ve been reading Tawni O’Dell’s Coal Run. A really interesting narrator and intriguing story and just damn good writing. Picked it up in a bargain bin and it’s been on my shelf for a year or so.
My students had library orientation last night, so I ventured downstairs for a few new reads. I picked up Tom Franklin’s Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter, The Feminine Mystique (sad but true, I’ve never actually read it) and Blood Done Sign My Name by T. Tyson.
I’ll need to update my “I read” page soon. Apparently, that should include more local news. We’re getting a hurricane this weekend. We had an earthquake yesterday, so I’m hoping Irene turns away and gives us a little break. Maybe just some nice heavy rain to read in.
